Out to sea

I don't even know the name of this SU set, but I've always liked it, and I picked it up for a song at a crafting consignment sale. One reason I like the set is that the images all work for masculine cards, like Father's Day.

This inspiration photo for the current Off the Wall Craftiness Challenges (OTWC52) helped nudge me to the nautical theme (see photo to right), and I had this pad of Making Memories paper that perfectly fit the color challenge -- yellow, red and blue.

The sketch is from last weekend's mini VSN at SCS. I just took some baker's twine, doubled it up and knotted it as the long embellishment. The star is simply a brad I found in the stash.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with pencils and OMS.
